How to turn your backyard into an oasis

Enjoy the vacation feel while at home all summer long by turning your backyard into an oasis. Here are some ideas to get your creativity flowing:

Upgrade your outdoor furniture

Make your outdoor space seem bigger by creating different seating areas for different purposes. If you’ve already got a nice patio set, freshen it up by replacing the cushions and adding some summery throw pillows for a whole new look.

Add a splash of fun

It may be too late in the season for installing an in-ground pool, but you can still have your floating fun with an above-ground pool this summer. Above-ground pools can cost as little as a few hundred dollars or as much as a few thousand, and take a week or less to install.

Make it natural

Yes, you’re already outdoors, but that doesn’t necessarily mean you’re surrounded by greenery. City dwellers can add a natural touch to small apartment porches with potted plants, a container garden, or a trellis with climbing flowers.

Financing your oasis

If you’re short on the cash you need to turn your backyard into an oasis this summer, we can help with a low-rate loan. Our terms are always favorable and our payback plans are affordable. Call 1-877-TRUMARK, visit, or stop by your local TruMark Financial branch to discuss your options.
